What's better than seeing a 25-year-old long-haired Jon Hamm publicly look for love on a cheesy '90s dating show? Pretty much nothing.

That's why we interrupt your Friday afternoon to bring you a recently unearthed clip from a 1996 episode of the reality dating show "The Big Date."

Not only is Hamm's performance a far cry from his smooth starring role as Don Draper in AMC's "Mad Men," but his younger self also seems to be quite the wordsmith.

"Start off with some fabulous food, a little fabulous conversation, end it with a fabulous foot massage for an evening of total fabulosity," Hamm, now 43, responds to a question on how to impress a lady on a first date.

She didn't pick him.
